When a page on your site doesn't load, an error message will be shown to the visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages which will appear, but what is common for all of them is that they're generic and most likely shall have absolutely nothing that resembles the layout of your Internet site, which can be aggravating for any site visitor. That is the main reason why hosting providers have introduced a feature named Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, website visitors shall see your unique content, which can be informative or amusing, depending on your preference, and which shall match the design and style of your Internet site, so the pages will not look like they're not part of your site at all. You can use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).
Custom Error Pages in Cloud Web Hosting
You can set up custom made error pages for each of your domains or subdomains. The function is supported by all cloud web hosting plans that we offer, so as soon as you log in to the Hepsia CP and go to the Hosted Domains section, you can click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up which will show up, you may choose the type of error page which should show up - a default one from our system, a typical Apache server page or a personalized one. For the last mentioned alternative, you need to specify the URL to the page, so when you use custom made pages, you should upload the files inside your website hosting account first. Another way is to use an .htaccess file placed in the domain or subdomain folder with a line for each and every error type. The exact syntax can be seen in our Knowledge Base, so you can use this function even if you do not have any previous experience.
